MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The Kremlin doesn’t deem it necessary to comment on the leadership of Russian President Vladimir Putin in various rankings, including the one prepared by the Time magazine, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"I cannot give an expert assessment of this ranking," he said.

"The fact that the president is one of the most popular, well-known and respected politicians in the world is obvious," Peskov said. "This leadership has been recorded by a number of media outlets — this is also an obvious fact," he added.

The Time ranking published on Monday on the magazine’s official website is based on a reader’s poll. It shows that Vladimir Putin has topped the list of the world’s 100 most influential people with 6.95% of the votes. That’s more than any other political, public or religious leader represented in the list.

Dalai Lama secured 1.7% of the votes, Pope Francis — 1.5%, US President Barack Obama — 1.4%. Chinese President Xi Jinping, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and German Chancellor Angela Merkel secured about 0.9% of the votes each.

The Time first published its ranking of the world’s 100 most influential people in 1999. According to the magazine, the list usually includes those people whose actions have the greatest impact on the situation in the world.
